RESTON, VA-It is not as though the net-lease sector has onlyrecently come into its own--in fact, it has been a steadily growingniche. However, the very low yields offered by bonds and Treasurieshas prompted more investors--both individual and institutional--totake a look at this category.

As it happens, net lease experts and Calkain Cos. principalsJonathan Hipp and David Sobelman are just releasing a book thatthis new group of investors will find helpful. Called “The LittleBook of Triple Net Lease Investing,” it is aimed at investorsinterested in these properties. The book details such advice asproperly profiling the tenant as well as determining whether thebuilding’s location is the best and highest use for that particulartenant. Hipp is also a blogger for GlobeSt.com in Net LeaseInsider.

This type of investment is becoming increasingly popular--notjust because of the sparse opportunities for yield in otherfinancial sectors--but also because a new generation of investorsis aging out of their multi-tenant investments.

Baby boomers, namely, are starting to seek out more passiveinvestments and net lease properties can be a good fit, dependingon their individual situations, Hipp tells GlobeSt.com. “They areessentially bonds wrapped in real estate,” he continues. “Theyprovide an attractive return plus there is a hard asset.”Institutions also see the category as an important piece to theirportfolio for much the same reason, he adds.

Calkain can attest firsthand to investors’ growing demand fornet lease properties: it recently opened an office in Delaware inresponse to institutional clients’ requests for localproperties in the state. The company is already working on a fewletters of intent there, Hipp says.
